Charlotte Pride Annual Interfaith Service
This service is a time for the LGBTQIA community to experience support and love from these open and affirming faith organizations. And it is a great way to kick off Charlotte Pride Week!
Please join us this year on Sunday, August 20, 2017, at 4:00 PM at Temple Beth El, 5101 Providence Rd., inside Shalom Park in Charlotte. A reception with refreshments will be provided following the service.
During the 2016 Charlotte Pride Interfaith Service, clergy members from over 25 different faith organizations expressed how “Our Community is a Rainbow of People.” Using the colors of the Pride rainbow/flag and the trans flag, the pastors talked about justice, religious freedom being used to oppress people, making Charlotte a safe city for everyone, honoring each other, courage, endurance, support against HB2, education, empathy, hope, and moving forward together.
The service included a call to worship from the Jewish faith tradition and peaceful, melodic chanting from the Buddhist faith tradition, as well as music from Illumination Chorale, the First United Methodist Church Chancel Choir, and the Charlotte Pride Band Wind Quintet.
Over the past few years, the Interfaith Service has grown exponentially, both in the number of clergy members participating and in the number of people attending the service. We hope that growth will continue in 2017.
